[PVE-User] Again, Ceph: default timeout for osd?

I think you've answered the nodown/noout question.

As for the "total unreasonable value" for the default..  In my
experience the "defaults" become the defaults in 1 of 2 primary ways.
The upstream vendor (ceph in this case) has a default that they select
based on their expected typical use case, and the downstream vendor
didn't override it,
the downstream changes it to match the typical expected use-case

Either way,   as with most things in the unix world, the defaults
aren't for everyone, which is why you can tune them.   If the defaults
aren't suitable for you, feel free to change them in your environment.
